Police Staff College
It was agreed that a new building would be constructed in Police District 12 in Kabul which is due to be completed by early 2014.
Whilst waiting for the new building to be built EUPOL has been utilising facilities/accommodation within the Border Faculty at the Kabul Police Academy. Training delivery focuses on Afghan National Police General Ranks, Higher Ranks and Officers Ranks. Training has been developed to align the ANP Rank structure with internationally recognised command levels, Gold, Silver and Bronze or Strategic, Tactical and Operational.
Courses delivered include:
• Provincial Commanders Course – this course is for Provincial Command teams and explores how the command team can develop their strategic and policing plans.
• Command Development Programme - this is for District Commanders and other Officers with strategic roles and explores the most important issues that influence and affect strategic leadership within the ANP.
• Advanced Command Skills Course – this course is for senior Police Officers, Colonel and above, in any role within ANP, the course encompasses communication skills and the ethical perspectives of leadership within the ANP.
• Intermediate Commanders Programme – this course is for newly promoted or serving officers between Lieutenant and Major and helps to develop their leadership skills and to understand the nature of Command alongside duty as a leader.
• Leadership & Management Course – this brings together newly promoted or serving officers between Lieutenant and Major and is aimed at assisting them to understand their Leadership & Management responsibilities within the ANP.
The new police staff college will be ready to move into, in January 2014. The Major General, Head of the Police Staff College, and his team are working closely with EUPOL to ensure that the very highest of standards are met in the new college. There are 17 classrooms plus a computer suite, and has accommodation for over 300 students. The college will be a centre of excellence for the learning and education of the Senior Leadership of ANP.
Eupol PSC staff are working very closely with The Major General and his training department, including approximately 35 trainers, to ensure that the transition from Eupol to Afghan led management and organisation of the staff college is managed in a sustainable, competent and capable manner.
In addition a Leadership Competency Framework for the ANP and a High Potential Development Scheme (HPDS) has been developed. The Competency Framework can be used for the purposes of recruitment, selection, promotion, self-development, training, performance assessment and compilation of job descriptions. The primary aim of the HPDS, is to identify officers with the potential to achieve the highest ranks in the service and to ensure they are equipped with the required skills to become highly effective in senior executive management, command and leadership roles.
